We are SO EXCITED to welcome THE MONSTORE by Tara Lazar, illustrated by James Burks, into the world!

The Monstore - Tara Lazar

Monsters are the best!

It’s Monstore Week here at EMUs debuts! Can you hear the roaring where you are?


It’s true — our usual MEEPs have been replaced with all sorts of monster-y noises in celebration of Tara’s debut.


The Monstore is a one-stop shop for all your monsterly needs in this enormously funny story that’s full of friendly, kooky creatures.

At the back of Frankensweet’s Candy Shoppe, under the last box of sour gumballs, there’s a trapdoor.

Knock five times fast, hand over a bag of squirmy worms, and you can crawl inside The Monstore.

The Monstore is the place to go for all of your monsterly needs. Which is perfect, since Zack definitely has a monsterly need. The problem? His pesky little sister, Gracie, who never pays attention to that “Keep Out” sign on Zack’s door—the one he has made especially for her.

But when Zack’s monsters don’t exactly work as planned, he soon finds out that the Monstore has a few rules: No Refunds. No exchanges. No exceptions.

We’re going to be celebrating here at EMUs debuts all week, so come back often! And leave a comment between now and Thursday for a chance to win a signed copy of THE MONSTORE — that’s a MONSTER BIG win!

You can find THE MONSTORE online at places like Indiebound, Amazon, and, or at your local bookstore.

  1. EROTSNOM! Not sure what that means, but we read (and loved) THE MONSTORE this weekend and my 10 yr old pointed out that this is how it is spelled backwards. A sequel perhaps, Tara? Congratulations!


  2. Must have this!! What a great premise!!! I could have used my own monster when I was growing up and had a pesky little brother.


  3. I am still just so bouncy with excitement that THE MONSTORE is finally in THE BOOKSTORE!!


  4. Hurrah for THE MONSTORE! Congratulations, Tara!!
